Hedluv And Passman – Two Cornish Rappers And A Casiotone Two: This Time It’s Similar (hedluv and passman)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Leave all preconceptions at the door, as Hedluv and Passman provide an hour of ridiculous entertainment that surpasses anything you could imagine. This Cornish rap duo, backed by the home-made beats of a Casio keyboard, spit about a range of topics including Cornish dialect, Cornish pasties and the Cornish coast. Passman’s flailing dance moves in retro sportswear dominate the entire stage, and provide constant laughs throughout the hour. His shorts, however, are not the only tight thing on stage, as their deadbeat and self-deprecating humour between tracks proves. The humorous lyrics, in a similar vein to Flight of the Concords, are unfortunately not always audible, but that’s mostly because there is so much packed into each song. An intense late-night spectacle.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 26 Aug (not 13), 11.30pm.
